Hillcrest Celebrates Homecoming Week


Hillcrest’s “Passport to the World” Homecoming Week was a success. In addition to the spirit days, there were many successful activities.

The Wednesday night bonfire was fun, a great night to kick-back, listen to music, and relax with friends.  On Thursday, The Powder Puff game was won by the Class of 2019 (Juniors) with a final score 28-7. 

On Friday, we held a spirit-filled pep rally. The class game was also won by the Class of 2019. During the homecoming football game, Hillcrest held a carnival to raise funds to support the mural which is located on the north end of the school facing 175th street.

A huge “Thank You” goes out to Ms. Caroline Snyder (Social Studies Teacher) for her part in organizing the carnival. At the carnival students purchased goods and played games that included a football toss, the Japanese game Kingyo Sukui (Goldfish Scooping), free throw shooting and more.

In addition to the win by the football team, the homecoming dance was attended by over 600 guests. As usual, Mrs. Cardinal and Mrs. Molek and the Student Council were fabulous in providing Hillcrest with a homecoming to remember.
